Avempartha (The Riyria Revelations,#2) Avempartha by Michael J. Sullivan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I read the first book in this series because I wanted to help out a new author, and our Goodreads Fantasy Book Club was reading it. I enjoyed the first book, but was somewhat ambivalent about it. I was interested in giving the series more of a chance so I nominated this book a couple of times and the rest of the group voted for something else. THEIR LOSS!! Avempartha is fantastic! It builds on the story set out in The Crown Conspiracy yet really takes off. I had a hard time putting it down and going to sleep each night I so wanted to find out what happened next. I felt Michael’s storytelling just blossomed. I loved the new characters and how they were introduced into the story. I love how he keeps peeling away new layers to the main characters, Hadrian and Royce, like an onion. I’m so glad I have Nyphron Rising so I can tear right into it and have a feeling it’s going to be agonizing to wait for book 4, but I’m hanging on to this wild ride all the way to the end.
